WASTING TIME ON THE INTERNET, Goldsmith, Kenneth
3 Goldsmith, Kenneth WASTING TIME ON THE INTERNET
Harper Perennial 2016 0062416472 / 9780062416476 Paperback Near Fine 
In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. Using clear, readable prose, conceptual artist and poet Kenneth Goldsmith's manifesto shows how our time on the internet is not really wasted but is q uite productive and creative as he puts the experience in its proper theore tical and philosophical context. Kenneth Goldsmith wants you to rethink the internet. Many people feel guilt y after spending hours watching cat videos or clicking link after link afte r link. But Goldsmith sees that "wasted" time differently. Unlike old media , the internet demands active engagement-and it's actually making us more s ocial, more creative, even more productive. When Goldsmith, a renowned conceptual artist and poet, introduced a class a t the University of Pennsylvania called "Wasting Time on the Internet", he nearly broke the internet. The New Yorker, the Atlantic, the Washington Pos t, Slate, Vice, Time, CNN, the Telegraph, and many more, ran articles expre ssing their shock, dismay, and, ultimately, their curiosity. Goldsmith's id eas struck a nerve, because they are brilliantly subversive-and endlessly s hareable. In Wasting Time on the Internet, Goldsmith expands upon his provocative insights, contending that our digital lives are remaking human experience. When we're "wasting time," we're actually creating a culture of collaboration. We're reading and writing more-and quite differently. And we're turning concepts of authority and authenticity upside-down. The internet puts us in a state between deep focus and subconscious flow, a state that Goldsmith argues is ideal for creati

4 Green, Stephen RELUCTANT MEISTER: HOW GERMANY'S PAST IS SHAPING ITS EUROPEAN FUTURE
Haus Publishing 2016 1910376574 / 9781910376577 Paperback As New 
The Euro crisis has served as a stark reminder of the fundamental importanc e of Germany to the larger European project. But the image of Germany as th e dominant power in Europe is at odds with much of its recent history. Relu ctant Meister is a wide-ranging study of Germany from the Holy Roman Empire through the Second and Third Reichs, and it asks not only how such a matur e and developed culture could have descended into the barbarism of Nazism b ut how it then rebuilt itself within a generation to become an economic pow erhouse. Perhaps most important, Stephen Green examines to what extent Germ any will come to dominate its relationship with its neighbors in the Europe an Union, and what that will mean.
